The piece you are talking about is a timer resistor. It has nothing to do with the heating problem.
There are three parts which you have to check for continuity:
The hi-limit thermostat (#3 on the break down diagram
The thermal fuse (#5 on the break down diagram
The cycling thermostat (#14 on the break down diagram
If any of these parts is open - it has to be replaced.
- The part number for the hi-limit thermostat is AP311455
- The part number for the thermal fuse (including the hi-limit thermostat) is AP415996
- The part number for the cycling thermostat is AP311676
